SAFE Update

Friends and Neighbors,

Salley Stepp, Director of SAFE recently reached out to let us know that once the stay at home ordered was lifted victims reached out to seek safety from the abuse they were living with at home. Sadly, that was not limited to domestic violence but also sexual violence. We are grateful to our donors who contributed at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic to keep SAFE available to those who need it most.

Please, please let everyone know that what SAFE does is not pretty and we do not have the cute pictures that give out donors and friends warm feelings about donating but they are not only saving lives of the innocent but they are giving hope and changing lives – one victim at a time.
